HPE ProLiant DL Servers Room for Improvement

Nazmi Saifee
General Manager / Head – Central Automation at Essar
I would like to see more of a hard drive base. IT keeps on changing the versions of their products. There have historically been great differences in time than when the G server, the Gen8, nine, and now 10 generations of DL ProLiant server have been available, the time differences are much less. Specifically for G9, G10 even less than one year, now there is no way people like us will keep on upgrading servers without having proper ROI. HPE needs to allow us to replace the CTUs of a higher generation. View full review »

I think that for us, we have is what we need. I'm not sure that we would like to see any new advanced features because we're not using such advanced features. I'm sure there's always places to improve but we are not using all of the advanced features that are in HPE. Perhaps the one thing is support globally, or distribution globally. Today we distribute in the United States and, over there, we have a center that can distribute for us, but I don't think they have such in the Eastern part of the world. So that could be an area for improvement. View full review »

Boot-up time should be reduced. Restarting a server at any time is a stress-filled occasion, and waiting around for the server to come back on is agonizing. 10GB and 40GB ethernet connections are essential for virtualization workloads and consolidation. View full review »

At the moment, I feel that there is more there that we could be using rather than things that are missing. View full review »

We use, the service comes with three year warranty with next business day support. We would like to enhance it with basic service and a better level of support. It is not required in the 380 series, but it is still widely used. So, a better option would be same day support. View full review »

If they could put more disk array in one node or rebuild it in the same server, it would be very helpful and more powerful. View full review »

We'd like to see better processors, better Intel processors. That's the most important for us at this moment. Also, the disappearance of the ML150 can be a problem. So we probably have to switch to the ML110, we don't know yet. Wa are also using the DL160, so it can be a problem. And that's why we may have to switch some of our products to a workstation.

The new function, which is coming at the moment, with the online firmware updates - that's one of the problems we're struggling with, with our customers, to have downtime - these live online updates are really, really a benefit we're waiting for. View full review »
